Free Copies of X1 Desktop Search for Blog Linking

Friday, October 15th, 2004

And yes, I believe this X1 Search is WAY better than Google Desktop Search at this time. I’ve found things on X1 that Google Desktop (bless it’s little heart) just wasn’t able to find, namely some stuff in Excel spreadsheets. Google Desktop even indexed the file, too, not sure why it couldn’t find the string […]

Burt Reynolds & Willie Nelson to Join Dukes Movie?

Friday, October 15th, 2004

Man, I hate it when people don’t know how to spell Rosco P. Coltrane’s name! It irks me to no end. IMDB it people, c’mon! I actually think Burt Reynolds would be funny to see as Boss Hogg, with a fatsuit on (like Gwyneth Paltrow in Shallow Hal) or maybe he doesn’t need it these […]

Miami Vice Movie Casted?

Thursday, October 14th, 2004

At least Michael Mann will helm, Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx actually make a pretty good duo for Crockett and Tubbs. I liked good ol’ Colin in S.W.A.T. and Jamie Foxx is getting his groove on lately, in Collateral and in the upcoming Ray (a Ray Charles movie).

Windows XP SP2 Auto Restart BS

Thursday, October 14th, 2004

This is complete BS. So I set some of my Windows XP SP2 Pro boxes to automatically update when there’s new Windows OS updates available. No big deal, I usually manually update Windows, but I thought this time it’d save me some time from leeching the big updates myself. Big mistake! There were some new […]

Amazon Going After Netflix Soon

Thursday, October 14th, 2004

A shocker to me, at least. Interesting that Amazon would go after the Netflix market, seeing as Netflix is so entrenched as the top online DVD rental service (and by far). Unless Amazon has a grandoise plan, it’ll be hard to beat Netflix’s quick service and roughly 30 distribution centers. The latest recorded number of […]

Nicky Hilton’s Busted Marriage

Thursday, October 14th, 2004

Aww, don’t tell me we were right! Well, to her credit, Nicky Hilton’s marriage lasted longer than Britney’s first 55 hour one. Wait, so will Britney’s second one last longer than Nicky’s? Gee, ya think 21 was a bit young? So, now about that pre-nup… — Nicky Hilton is reportedly annulling her marriage. The hotel […]

ID Required to Buy/Rent Games in Canada

Thursday, October 14th, 2004

Ha, and you thought Canadians were all weed-smoking hippies with all the freedom in the world. Yes, they have more nudity on TV, but no, you can’t buy your GTA: San Andreas without an ID. Nothing like good ol’ violence and a coalition of parents to force the gaming industry into IDing everyone. — You […]

Google Desktop Search is Here!

Thursday, October 14th, 2004

Nice find Jimmy! The long anticipated Google Desktop Search program is here, I’m just about to download it and give it a run through. It needs a whopping 1GB of free disk space for it to even install. Guess I gotta unload some MP3s first, and also, it only runs on Windows XP or Windows […]

Female William Hung Coming Soon

Wednesday, October 13th, 2004

Well, good to know we’ll have William Hung 2.0 to look foward to in 2005, when the new season of AI premieres. He was a hoot, heck, he got a recording contract and had his album out two months before Fantasia even won Season 3 (are we already at Season 4 now?). He was actually […]

Paypal Site Screwed for 5 Straight Days

Tuesday, October 12th, 2004

Hey, it’s owned by eBay, it was bound to happen sooner or later. Ya know, besides maybe some banks, what other site besides eBay and Paypal (well, maybe Netflix) actually take the WHOLE site down EVERY week for 2-4 hours for maintenance? I really don’t think any site should ever be down, ever. Hey, at […]
